We are offering this unique opportunity for an experienced Children’s Nurse to join our multi-disciplinary care team at Charlton Farm, Wraxall. We provide respite, palliative and bereavement care for children with life limiting conditions on a one-to-one basis. We aim to recruit friendly and enthusiastic staff who are motivated to really make a difference to the lives of the children and families who visit us.

Working as part of a friendly team, Charlton Farm offers a beautiful, homely and fully equipped workplace. In these roles our staff have the time to build relationships with children and their families whilst they are at the hospice and between visits and this helps to make these incredibly fulfilling roles.

Additional benefits of working for us include the opportunity to maintain NHS superannuation, generous holiday entitlement, free onsite parking and continuous training and development opportunities.

Applicants should be experienced in caring for children with life-limiting conditions, complex needs or chronic illnesses. Please telephone 01275 866600 if you would like to speak to a Senior Team Leader or our Head of Care about the role.

Application packs are available from our website or you can request one by email; or by calling HR on 01275 866627.
